What is K2?

K2 is a set of tools that provide enhancements to the way you manage articles on your site. It helps you save management time and also provides better server performance.

  1. Log into Joomla as an Administrator.
  2. Click on the K2 icon: Picture 2
  3. In the K2 Management page, click on Parameters: Picture 3
  4. In here, change the JQuery library handling to local. This will increase rendering performance and the speed of your website: Picture 4
  5. Still in the Parameters page, go to the images tab and change the quality to 90. This will also increase the speed of your site: Picture 5
  6. If you want to put a twitter button on your site, we strongly recommend using the social part that K2 provides. Go to the Social Tab and enter your twitter username: Picture 6
  7. Finally, on the Advance tab, set the google search integration to ‘Yes’: Picture 7
